Boyfriend Maintenance

Congratulations to "Hefleyl1269", the winner in Lauren's giveaway. Please contact JUST CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE to claim your prize!

Well, hello there! I’m so excited to share my newest release, Boyfriend Maintenance with the Just Contemporary Romance community. Let me give you a little backstory here. Last year, I had this idea, what if a group of authors wrote a series that had one connecting item or theme? It would be a series, all the books standalone. I did research and found that I wasn’t the only one with this great idea. So I worked through the whole project and invited some author friends of mine to join me. It floored me at how many of them jumped on board. Eight to be exact. So we started planning and writing. Months later, five of the nine books have released. And readers are loving them. I couldn’t be happier at how much love this series is garnering.

Shifting focus to Boyfriend Maintenance, I was really excited to write this book. I had this book outlined so well and the words flowed so quickly that I wrote it in about four weeks. Emmy and Jake were so much fun and they couldn’t wait for me to write their story. I’ve never written a fake relationship and I have to say, I’m kinda obsessed with the trope now. I want to read all the books that feature a fake relationship. So I hope you love Emmy and Jake as much as I do, and I hope, if you haven’t already, check out the rest of the 425 Madison series!

Lauren is giving away a $10 Amazon gift card and an eBook copy of one of her Gamer Boy novels. (winner’s choice).

Boyfriend Maintenance

Emmy King became a disgraced high-socitey princess when she walked away from her family’s money. Jake Harper is the sexy yet uninterested apartment building’s maintenance man. When the two agree to help each other out, they quickly realize the more time they spend together the more the lines get blurred. The fifth book in the #mustread series, 425 Madison Avenue, is now live. Read Boyfriend Maintenance by Lauren Helms today!

Only on Amazon + Read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited

My bad reputation is coming back to haunt me. Now, I need a date for my brother’s wedding just to keep the vultures at bay. I’ve noticed Jake around the building and he’s the perfect man for the job.
The thing is, I don’t actually have what I promised in return for his help, but I don’t want this to end.

I’ve seen Emmy and she’s out of my league, but that doesn’t stop me from taking her up on her offer and upping the ante. I have rules, however, the more time we spend together the more the lines get blurred.
Her lie made her more like me than I ever thought possible. Too bad liars don’t do it for me.

A little boyfriend maintenance goes a long way…

After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.
